Port State Control – tankers’ share of detentions continues to fall

INTERTANKO’s ongoing review and analysis of reports of world-wide port state control inspections and detentions (as reported by the USCG, the Paris MoU and the Tokyo MoU) show that tankers still enjoy a lower psc detention record than the overall average.

Through this seven year period tankers have consistently shown a lower share of inspected ships detained as compared to the total. Our preliminary estimate for 2003 shows that over 53,000 inspections of ships took place through port state control, resulting in more than 3,500 detentions. 6.5% of the inspections resulted in detentions. As for tankers, more than 8,700 inspections were carried out which resulted in about 320 detentions or 3.7% of the inspected tankers detained.
